President Ashraf Ghani has condemned Monday’s deadly bombing by Daesh at a Quetta hospital in Pakistan which killed at least 70 people.
Ghani said the enemies of Islam and humanity carried out the terrorist attack on people who had gathered to mourn the passing of the president of the Baluchistan Bar Association at the hospital.
“Attacking people is a grave crime, which is not justifiable under any religion or law,” Ghani said.
In his statement he stressed that the government of Afghanistan is committed to doing all it takes to prevent terrorist activities at a national and regional level.
He said government fights all terrorist groups without differentiating between good and bad, and urged others to take indiscriminate action against all terrorists since terrorism neither recognizes any religion, law, race or ethnicity, nor does it have any respect for them.
The president also offered his condolences and sympathies to the families of those killed.
Daesh group on Monday claimed it was behind the suicide bombing that tore through a Pakistani hospital, killing at least 70 people, Daesh’s Amaq news agency reported.
“A martyrdom bomber of the Daesh detonates his explosive belt on a group of personnel belonging to the Ministry of Justice and the Pakistani Police in the city of Quetta,” Amaq said.
The bomber struck a crowd of some 200 people gathered at the Civil Hospital in the Balochistan provincial capital of Quetta after the fatal shooting of a the Baluchistan lawyer, Bilal Kasi.
